.s. mission in benghazi has dogged the obama administration. hear what president obama says about the controversy and why he's saying go after me, quote/unquote, when asked about u.n. ambassador susan rice. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter. bp has paid overthe people of bp twenty-threeitment to the gulf. billion dollars to help those affected and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open, and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. and bp's also committed to america. we support nearly 250,000 jobs and invest more here than anywhere else. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. our commitment has never been stronger. [ male announcer ] you build a reputation by not breaking down. consider the silverado 1500 -- still the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickups on the road. and now we've also been recognized for lowest total cos
they perceive to be even handed but what they're doing is encouraging the obama administration, and what they're really doing is encouraging radicals. >> you think the world radicals were emboldened by the election? >> they didn't support romney. they were encouraged by obama. >> stephanie: there is trouble now with israel and that never happened before. >> back in 1972 richard nixon denied anything to do with a low level--had the press not been aggressive nixon would have gotten away with it. and the break in the watergate hotel was not nearly as important as failing to define a terrorist attack that killed four americans. obama made a mistake not getting ahead of the story. he should have given the facts weeks ago and the press let him get away with it, but now the heat is coming down, as it should. >> stephanie: i heard this on limbaugh. worse than watergate. worse than watergate. third rate burglary. >> if i had a nickel every time the far right said something obama did was worse than watergate. >> stephanie: clearly. jim, what are you going to say? >> it can be a terror attack that was i
to talk about specifically if he is asked whether or not there is going to be a benefit for a second obama administration for the african-american community and how they're doing economically? and also, you see this president over the last couple of weeks who is more emotional and we've seen him cry the last couple of times, the last couple of weeks. is he iffing to feel that he can be a little bit more of himself, more open and really own this administration, own his policy, and be a more comfortable president in the next four years? >> he got re-elected rather decisively, 332 electoral college votes. you only need 270 to be elected. he goes in right now with a lot of confidence, but, you know what, all that confidence in the world can't help if the country is about to go over the fiscal cliff. >> yeah. you ow, i mean, it really is something when you think about it going in the second term that he is going to be dealing with something like this. there are some advisor who's say, yeah, call the bluff, go over the cliff. it's not going to be as bad as you think because you've got more lever
program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben
attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi, libya. republicans, they stepped up their criticism of the obama administration after the president's strong defense yesterday of u.n. ambassador suzanne rice. rice originally said the attack resulted from protests over an anti-islamic video. while some democrats defended rice today, one congressman called the president a liar. >> what is clear is that this administration, including the president himself, has intentionally misinformed, lied to the american people in the aftermath of this tragedy. >> information that rice received, she cede from the administration, and that information is what she knew at that time. whether or not she knew other information and whether or not she told the truth, that is not an issue here. >> the fact is without iffing gu intoou all the details, documents received so that in 24 hours of the attack people m intelligence community believe that this was a terrorist attack, there was a planned attack, and so when they knew that the day after, which would have been september 12th, why on september 14th was general petraeu
. in this state they ignored this attack by the obama administration on religious liberties, which obamacare and -- almost 80% of the catholics in this state voted for liberal democrats, abortion. guy think it was a big problem by the church not speaking out. they seem to be so afraid of lawyers and being sued that they were calworks -- were cowards, especially from the pulpits. they totally neglected it. i don't blame the republicans. i blame the catholic church. host: we are asking republicans only this morning to discuss the future of their party, basically because of all the voices that continued on the weekend, republican voices, leaders of the party talking about what mitt romney has said about why he lost and how to afford. rick santorum, a former pennsylvania senator, writes -- today."n "usa as for another republican voice, marco rubio. this is a store in "politico" this morning. -- a story. there's a little of what the senator had to say. [video clip] >> we start with a very simple motion. a way to turn our economy around is not by making rich people poor. it's by making poor people
moment. i think the message you hear from the obama administration is that moment is not coming back again. you have to pick your fights and pick them according to national interests. i think what will be fascinating in the mideast, as you saw in libya, where we got into a discussion, a debate between the republican defense secretary, robert gates, who said there is no national interest here and people like secretary clinton, susan rice and others who said we have a responsibility to protect and not was the argument for going in and -- that was the argument for going in. that argument remains unsettled today, and that is the doubt i think you were picking up on in your question. >> i will make several comments. in europe, a look at it this way. first, when you look at, globally, countries, the united states has had the capability, and even in this period of time, but secondly, it is the united states that has taken the responsibility and stepped forward. i cannot point to another country that has been willing to take that responsibility. having said that, david refers to how we
on this administration. >> obama: she made the appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> now where in there did he say "pick on" pop those were their words. >> stephanie: exactly. and by the way you know who is back to the administration is paul wolwitz. what everybody has said. there were fast-moving events from the middle east. they said this was the intelligence they had at the time. this is lindsay graham yesterday. >> this is about the role she played about four dead americans when it seems to me that the story coming out of the administration, and she's the point person is so disconnected to reality, i don't trust her. the reason why i don't trust her is b
. catherine, thanks so much. yesterday president obama testified his administration's handling of the consulate attack that killed four americans. take a listen to this exchange went president and ed henry. >> i wanted to ask about the families of these four americans killed. sean smith's father ray said he believes his son basically called 911 for help and didn't get it. and i know you said you grieve for these four americans. that it's being investigated. but the families have been waiting for two months. i would like to -- for you to address the families if you can. on 9/11 as commander in chief did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> ed, you know, i'll address the families not through the press, i'll address the families directly as i already have. and we'll provide all the information that is available about what happened on that day. that's what the investigation is for. but as i said repeatedly, if people don't think that we did everything we can to make sure that we saved the lives of folks who i sent there and who were carrying out miss on behalf of
obama is not about to let a member of his administration get drugged through the mud by the righties. he was also very calculating on his take on the scandal surrounding former cia chief david pezus. >> i am withholding judgment on how the process around general pettia came up. and it's also possible you'd be asking why are we interfering in a criminal investigation. i think it's best right now for to us see how this whole process unfolded. >> the president also showed the immigration he has and pressure on republicans to reach a bipartisan agreement. >> before the election hi given a couple interviews where i had predicted that the latino vote to be strong and that and. >> i gets it's full steam ahead for the president's second term. he knows the work is not over on immigration. that is it going to be a big issue in 2013. climate chang came up today, which is very important to the economy and the economy itself. president obama needs to pain t -- maintain the support of the american people. at one point he was asked "you got a mandate"? >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got
it on bush, last administration, not his fault. well, now it is his fault. >> reporter: in 2009, just after president obama inaugurated, we spent time in king county, we met charlotte mccauley. who told us -- >> i asked god that he would help him truly connect with him so he would know what god's heart was for the united states of america. >> reporter: and this is charlotte today at the women's club meeting. you told us four years ago that you hoped that the lord would help barack obama. do you think that happened? >> it does not appear so. >> reporter: and then something we have heard before. what does it bother you the most about the first term? >> not being honest about where he was born, and different like things like that. to me, he seems dishonest. >> reporter: he said he was born in hawaii. said that a long time. i'm wondering if, a, have you heard that? if you have, why don't you believe it? >> i just don't believe anything he says. >> reporter: there are certainly people in king county who don't believe the president about the country of his birth, and they also question his faith.
with president obama since the 2008 presidential election. you mentioned that clip of condoleezza rice. it's worth noting that not only were there wmd intelligence failures in the bush administration, but the intelligence failure to the memo president bush got on osama bin laden determining to strike the united states. condoleezza rice was national security adviser. condoleezza rice should have received tough questions in the confirmation hearing for secretary of state in 2005. >> governor rendell, i can't remember which show it was on. someone brought up the point that you have senator mccain questioning the intellect or the ability of susan rice to carry out a job when the quote was he brought the world sarah palin. >> that's true, too. the fundamental point that we've got to never lose focus on is that susan rice had nothing to do with what happened in benghazi, vis-a-vis the ambassador and the three other americans killed. she had no role in that. she wasn't in the decision-making process. it is why this is so totally unfair and as the president said, it's an attempt to besmurge the re
about it, the only reason we didn't have immigration reform during the bush administration is because two gentlemen, rahm emanuel in the house and barack obama in the senate decided to vote for an amendment to the immigration bills that actually help the union. they were backed by the unions, and they decided that they would poison the well by voting for those amendments that killed immigration reform. nobody talks about that in the immediate, but it was liberal labor unions and those barack obama in the senate who decided to poison the well. he did it again this time, and i think as republicans we have to be smarter than we have been on this issue in the past. we have to look past the easy of the other side and find a rational solution to immigrati immigration. >> i find common ground with that analysis, raul, and i think also that marco rubio has done a very good job of articulating some of the things that emerged from this white house, and not, not, i don't know that you can, you can make a very strong case that republicans have been hostile on this dialog so much as it has been th
